Event details

Jacqueline Ogeil and John O’Donnell, partners in life as well as music, have been performing together for the past 27 years.

Internationally renowned as both performers and scholars, they regularly collaborate in the presentation of major Baroque and Classical works. Rediscovering the soundworlds of past eras, this concert features the most substantial works written for two harpsichords: J.S. Bach’s Concerto in C, and the Concerto in A minor by his student Johann Ludwig Krebs.

These beautiful and entertaining works will be performed on two of Australia’s finest harpsichords, made by William Dowd and William Bright.
